1440.

Relationship between Chapters 1 and 2 of Part 9 and Irish Takeover Panel Act 1997

1440. (1) For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in Chapter 1 or 2 of Part 9 prejudices the jurisdiction of the Irish Takeover Panel under the Irish Takeover Panel Act 1997 with respect to a compromise or scheme of arrangement that is proposed between a relevant company (within the meaning of that Act) and its members or any class of them and which constitutes a takeover or other relevant transaction within the meaning of that Act and, accordingly, that Panel has, and shall be deemed always to have had, power to make rules under section 8 of that Act in relation to a takeover or other relevant transaction of the foregoing kind, to the same extent and subject to the like conditions, as it has power to make rules under that section in relation to any other kind of takeover or other relevant transaction.

(2) The Irish Takeover Panel, in exercising its powers under the Irish Takeover Panel Act 1997, and the court, in exercising its powers under Chapter 1 or 2 of Part 9 , shall each have due regard to the other’s exercise of powers under that Act or either such Chapter, as the case may be.
